Mag-Aso Falls » What Is So Great About Chasing Waterfalls?

hover_share Like a secret paradise - Mag-aso Falls with its turquoise water and surrounding greenery.
Yes, it appears I have been questioning myself about this – and I do like to pose questions to myself when I feel I need to do so, especially when I’m traveling. It never fails to offer me a refreshing gem of insights at the most unexpected place.  

So what’s so great about chasing waterfalls?

I asked myself this question during our side trip to Mag-aso Falls in Kabankalan City on our Negros Occidental random getaway. 

Under normal circumstances, I would have been at home doing DVD marathons or surfing the internet on weekend or long holidays. But my life’s circumstances ceased to be normal when I discovered the joy of climbing mountains or chasing waterfalls or by just being somewhere. I realized I hate routines.     

It was on this trip to Mag-aso Falls that I had this enlightening observation of the people around me. Maybe it’s a common-sense theory that I had never thought before – or maybe it’s a valid philosophical discovery.

The Ruins in Negros Occidental » 10 Lovely Facts You Need to Know Before Visiting

hover_share Painting of The Ruins depicting a Kalesa and the Veranda of The RuinsI was watching TV the other day and I saw this teleserye titled "Ikaw Lamang". I'm no fan of soap operas -- why I mentioned it here is because one of the locations featured in the said soap was particularly familiar. 

Later while I was organizing my travel photos, I came across random shots from our Negros Occidental trip two years ago and remembered that that lovely mansion in Talisay City is called "The Ruins." I do feel guilty realizing that it was on my pending-blog-post list for a year now - turns out my usual enthusiastic self cannot cope too well with work stress, hence my last year's blogging hiatus.

Anyway, I do really miss this blogging thing and I still have lots of interesting travel related posts on my drafts folder. 

To catch up, let me share here some lovely facts about this hauntingly beautiful mansion called "The Ruins" in Talisay City. It was not just a mansion, but a "monument of love" like the Taj Mahal.
